To Impove Your Adsense Income, Follow These 5 Steps
To mamimise your earnings through your website, there is no better way than to place Adsense ads on your site. Some site owners are earning thousands of dollars a month, all because they choose to not run with the heard, and be "lone-wolf" when it comes to oringinal thinking. "Sometimes crazy works". - Optimus Primal.
What this means, is that they are not afraid to try new and different things, which is how innovation comes about, and new things are created from sometimes risky ventures birthed from sometimes desperate ideas.
The ones who have "been there and done that" have quite some useful tips to help those who would want to venture into this field. Some of these tips have boosted quite a lot of earnings in the past and is continuously doing so. Be careful of these tips that these gurus hand out, remember that they are only after your money in the end. They are not lying, essentially; they are just not revealing the entire truth on how they earn an impressive income via Adsense. I mean, think about it. Would you reveal your money making secrets? No, obviously. Since I'm not a "guru" then, perhaps you can believe what I say. ;-)
Here are the best 5, proven ways on how to improve and maximize your Adsense earnings.
1. Concentrating On Only One Format Of Adsense Ads.
The rectangle (336X280) is by far the best ad format that produces the highest click-throughs. Using this format can result in a higher CTR, or click-through rate. Why choose this format out of the many you can use? Basically because the ads will look like normal web links, and people, being used to clicking on them, click these types of links. Kind of like a trained pidgin, but that's another story. Visitors don't care who owns the Adsense ad they are clicking on, as long as it takes them to where they want to go. This is income for you, of course. Duh.
2. Create A Custom Palette For Your Ads.
Choosing a color that will go well with the background of your site, is of course very important. The whole idea re: Adsense is that they must STAND OUT on your site. If your site has a white background, try to use white as the color of your ad border and background. The idea to patterning the colors is to make the Adsense look like it is part of the web pages. Again, this will result to more clicks from people visiting your site.
3. Remove The Adsense From The Bottom Pages Of Your Site And Place Them At The Top.
Don't try to hide your Adsense. That's stupid; you won't make any money that way. Place them where people can see them quickly and easily. By placing your Adsense ads in your visitors "line-of-site", you will be amazed by how much this boosts your income.
4. Maintaining Links To Relevant Websites.
If you think some sites are making more money than others, try placing your ads on that site, and make sure you keep them up to date. If there is already lots of Adsense on that certain site, place yours on top of all of them. That way visitor will see your ads first upon browsing into that site.
5. By automating the insertion process of your Adsense code using SSI (Server Side Included), you greatly simplify things.
If you need to use SSI, it's a good idea to ask your web administrator if this is supported. How do you do it? Just save your Adsense code in a text file, save it as "Adsense text", and upload it to the root directory of the web server. Then using SSI, call the code on other pages. This tip is a time saver especially for those who are using automatic page generators to generate pages on their website.
These are some of the tips that have worked well for some who want to generate hundreds and even thousands of dollars off of their websites. It is important to know though, that ads are displayed because it fits the interest of the people viewing them. So focusing on a specific topic should be your primary purpose, because the displays will be especially targeted on a topic that persons will be viewing already. In other words, making sure that the content on your website is keyword rich, and you can easily update on a regular basis, keeping it "search engine friendly".
Note also that there are many other Adsense sharing the same topic as you. It is best to think of making a good ad that will be somewhat different and unique than the ones already done. Remember what I said earlier of "thinking outside the square". In other words, try and be original! Every clickthrough that visitors make is money in your pocket, so make every click count by making your Adsense something that people will definitely WANT click on. Duh again.
Tips given by those who have boosted their earnings are just guidelines they want to share with others. If they have somehow worked wonders to some, maybe it can work wonders for you too. Try them out into your ads and see the result it will bring.
If others have done it, there is nothing wrong trying it out for yourself. Besides, what do you have to lose? Only income.
